Forecasts reaching the parly managers here estimate a much .smaller vote Tuesday in the neighborhood ot GOO.OOO. Even that luniout would be higher than was expected a few weeks ago. One source of Republican worry is the candidacy of Howard H. Boyle Jr., a conserva- tive Republican, who figures to subtract from Kohler's vote. GOP leaders are conceding him about 20.000 votes.

Girard fired, "two or three times" at other Japanese before he fired the shot that killed Mrs. Naka Sakai and stated a passionate international controversy. Tim prosecution read its state- ment on the opening day of Ihe dial. At the end of Ihe day, trial adjourned until Sept. 6. Dur- ing Ihe opening moments Girard pleaded innocent lo manslaughter charges and his attorney made a motion to get the case out of Japanese courts. The prosecution slatcmenl said (hat on the same day Girard fired WASHINGTON hot JOtalo of whether American news- nen should go lo Red China today vas back in the determined but icrvous hands of. Ihe U.S. State Department. The controversy headed back to ts starting point when Radio Pei- ping served heated notice Sunday hat no American newsmen would >e allowed in Communist China unless Red Chinese newsmen were ;iven permission to report from he Uniled Stales. The Peiping radio broadcast, monitored in Tokyo, quoted the Peiping People's Daily, the offi- cial mouthpiece of the Red Chinese regime which invariably voices the government's views. The newspaper charged t h o United Slates with "discourtesy" in refusing reciprocal viasas lo Chinese newsmen and said the Slate Department decision to al- low 24 U.S. newsmen to go to China is "completely unaccept- able. The Stale Department immedi- ately said it would stand firm. The department's stand drew an immediate blast from Sen. J. Wil- liam Fulbright (D-Ark.l, who in- troduced a Senate resolution last Monday calling for removal of the adminislralion ban against letting U.S. newsmen visit Red China. "If our script is better than theirs why isn't it good policy not to let everyone kriow about Fulbright said. The broadcast accused the Unit- ed States o( wanting to send the newsmen as "spies'J and lo "cre- ate trouble." State Department officials said they based their stand on the fact (he United Slates docs not main- tain diplomatic relations with Red China. The officials also scoffed at the charge that any of (he newsmen could possibly bo spies. They point- ed out the reporters all were to be chosen hy their own news or- ganizations and the department would have no hsnd in Ihe selec- tion. Stars Deny Lurid Tales HOLLYWOOD (UP) Defense attorney Arthur J. Crowley today dared film celebrities "to swear" court that lurid stories about them in Confidential and Whisp- er magazines were untrue. challenge wax an out- growth of out-of-court denials of alleged off-screen amour by such stars as Corinne Calvet, Mau- reen O'Hara and John Carroll. The attorney said he would prefer that the prosecution call the an- gered celebrities to Ihe stand be- cause, "it would put me in a po- sition to impeach their testi- mony." The sensational criminal libel trial of Confidential magazine en- tered its fourth week today. Fred Meade operator with his wife of a Hollywood agency which the ii'ate charged gathered juicy tidbits for Confidential, took the witness stand fnr the third time. The state hoped lo lure him inlo revealing additional details ol how Confidential allegedly at Mrs. Sakai he also fired at tin feet-of a man identified as Isamu Yadoyara nnd at scrap scavengers named Toshizo Koyama and Kat- suzo Kanae. Chief Procurator (prosecutor) Yoshio Konawa announced he would call nine witnesses to testi- fy, including Girard's Aimy buddy Specialist 3-C Victor Nickel of Ink- ster, Mich., was wilh Girard at the time of the shooting. Tlie prosecution charged that Giard lured Mrs. Sakai toward him hy throwing out used ear- tridged and calling "mama-san, takusan ne (woman, plenty, eh." II charged he fired one shot at Hideharu Onozeki, who was wilh Mrs. Sakai, just missing his feet, and then loaded his grenade launcher again. It said Girard ran toward Mrs. Sakai, shouting "get out, and fired from a distance of about eight meters (eight hitting her in the back. Judge Juzo Kawachi adjourned the first day's session after the prosecution completed ils opening statement. Girard's attorney, Itsuro Haya- shi, one of Japan's top criminal lawyers, asown out of Japaneonse own out of Japanese courts on lawyers, asown out of Japanese jurisdictional grounds. Judge Kawachi reserved deci- sion. It was the jurisdiction issue that sparked the controversy in the United States with congressmen and veterans' groups criticizing the United States for turning Gi- rard over to Japan. Tlie U.S. Su- preme Court ruled the government had the right to take such action, but the critics demanded that the status of forces agreements, which gave the adminislralion Ihe right, be thrown out. Girard, 22, of Ottawa, 111., was accused of shooting and killing Mrs. Sakai, mother of six children, on a U.S. Army firing range Jan. while she was gathering shell castings to sell as scrap metel. K convicted, Girarri faces a possible sentence of from two to 15 years imprisonment. Girard declared his innocence at Ihe opening o( the trial when Judge Kawchi asked him if he had anything lo say. Girard spoke in a voice almost inaudible to spectators in the first row seats: "I did not scalier shells or lure he said. "I did not intend to hurt anyone. I was carrying out my duty defending the machine gun. f fired over their heads lo scare them. "I have one thing to Gi- rard said. "It was an accident, and I am sorry this occurred." There was no commotion outside the courthouse, but a self-appoint- ed Japanese champion (or Girard passed out leaflets demanding a light sentence for the American soldier.
